November 2020: New York, United States, MicroNovelty launches a new air pump that’s more than just a portable air pump but also doubles as a lantern and vacuum pump.
The GIGA series, a sub-brand of MicroNovelty, includes two air pump models: small, compact, and highly portable. The second model, though, is currently running a crowdfunding project on Indiegogo.
The need for portable and multi-purpose gadgets is on the rise, especially for outdoorsy individuals. No one wants to stuff their bags with several devices when they can have one that performs most, if not all, the functions. This applies to air inflators, and we have already seen innovators like Mojietu launching multi-functional air inflators. Others, like SeatZac, are launching inflatable objects with inbuilt air-inflators.
So, what is MicroNovelty bringing to the table?

Besides inflating items, you can also use its deflate switch to suck out all air from vacuum bags in objects for easier storage.

The super early bird sale price is $29.00, while the IGG special price is $39.00. The retail price is $49.00, so both prices offer 41%and 20% discount respectively. If you are ready to back the project, you have about a week to do so. Also, the shipping is slotted for December 2020
Unfortunately, that retail price is a bit high compared to other portable inflators in the markets. A quick search on online retail sites like Amazon pops out several affordable portable air pumps, some with LCD light.
